Hebron – Ma'an – An elderly Palestinian man was killed by a gunshot to the head in what was believed to by a dispute-related murder in the West Bank city of Hebron on Thursday.

Palestinian Authority police said in a statement that the man, identified as 65-year-old Tamim Bader Da'ana, died at Al-Ahli Hospital, where he was taken shortly after he was attacked.

Police said the man was found injured in the Al-Harayeq area of Hebron, near its Al-Hesba wholesale market, where police opened an investigation and began collecting evidence.

The police media office added that investigators believe the killing was related to a long-running family dispute, and that an implicated suspect would soon be arrested.

Also on Thursday in Hebron, a woman was arrested for allegedly strangling her 16-year-old daughter to death with a scarf.

According to police, the woman strangled the teenager in her bedroom on Wednesday night. After investigating the crime scene and questioning relatives, the suspect was arrested seven hours after the crime took place, a statement from the police department said.

Ashraf Mash'al, the chief prosecutor in Hebron, opened an investigation after a medical examiner conducted an autopsy on the deceased which pointed to foul play.
